girl crush: Jessica Chastain

 

It’s pretty obvious that 2011 was a breakout year for Jessica Chastain. Suddenly, this ethereal redhead seemed to be floating down every major red carpet, leaving us all asking – who is that girl?

We quickly found out: a poised starlet who can hold her own in films both artsy (Tree of Life) and mass-market (The Help) – and whose versatile, romantic style literally makes us weak in the knees. All that together make her oh-so crush worthy.

 

Who’s your girl crush?

best-dressed at the 2012 SAG Awards

The Help and Modern Family were big winners at last night’s SAG awards. And while screen veterans Jessica Lange, Betty White and Alec Baldwin also snagged tops honors, we have to nod our heads to the following women for winning over the red carpet with style and grace.


Dianna Agron looked flawless in this pink number topped off with just the right amount of ruffle and a chic bohemian hairstyle.

Ashlee Simpson took us by surprise when she stepped out onto the red carpet last night. Looking fabulous from head to toe, she proved she’s a fashion force to reckon with.

Oh, hello Emily Blunt! It’s not enough that you have an awesome British accent, but you also have an amazing figure that looks good in any style. Green can be a risky red carpet shade, but Emily really rocked it out!


Emma Stone why are you so adorable? This beauty can do no wrong! Yes, her hair color changes, but her distinct eye for fashion does not.

Kaley Cuoco looked like a princess last night. Her hair was fairy tale perfect and her dress was straight out of a story book. Congrats to her for recently getting engaged to her prince charming.

Lea Michele has made some bold fashion choices this award season, and she continues to show us she’s not afraid to stand out with this show stopping number.

It seems Naya Rivera can do no wrong when dressing for the red carpet. On top of being blessed with exotic features, she always chooses designs that compliment her body shape.

Beautifully strapless with a tousled up do, Viola Davis turned heads with this gorgeous look.

Sofia Vergara was looking muy caliente last night! This magenta silk gown hugged every curve of her body in the most flattering way possible. With her hair was pulled back and wearing just the right amount of diamonds there was no overlooking this style star!

Michelle Williams was definitely my favorite look of the night. This gorgeous red dress looked perfect against her porcelain skin. She looked timeless and sexy without going over the top.
